Research Stay at IAWA, Virginia Tech

W@ARCH.PT researcher and project leader Patrícia Santos Pedrosa did a research stay at Virginia Tech. The purpose of this stay was to consult the International Archive of Women in Architecture (IAWA) in search of information about Portuguese women architects of the 20th century. The visit was very pertinent to the ongoing research.

We thank Virginia Tech and IAWA for having us!
